The Hopper Dental Saddle with Back Support was designed as the best supported Dental Saddle to manage a sore back among Dentists, Dental Hygienists, and Dental Nurses. The innovative saddle encourages dynamic sitting which is extremely important in keeping your spine healthy and ensuring you don't get a sore back.
The very comfortable Dental Saddle seat shape allows Dental professionals to work safely without slouching or leaning over too much. The optional foot-operated height adjustment of the Dental Saddle allows you to work without needing to pause to adjust positions. The tilting seat allows dentists to sit in an active posture productively and without the fear of injury. The adjustable back support enures a safe sitting experience.
In comparison to the Amaze, the Hopper has a slightly wider seat allowing for a slightly smaller hip angle. The Hopper provides a more traditional sitting experience as the seat takes more of your weight. Standard Dental Saddle Chairs may lack the safety, comfort, ease of use and the posture improving benefits of the Hopper Dental Saddle with Back Support.

1. Prevent and manage back pain with a natural upright sitting posture
Traditional dental saddles and stools allow a limited hip angle. This increases the pressure on your spine and makes it difficult to sit upright resulting in a slouched position and encourages a habit of working bent over.
The Hopper Dental Saddle with Back Support prevents this occurring. With an elevated sitting height which opens your hip angle (up to 140 degrees) along with a uniquely shaped saddle, you can sit in a healthy neutral position (spine, neck and head in vertical alignment). This enables a healthy and stable sit-stand posture while you work.
2. Work closer to your patient without bending over as much.
A standard saddle provides a hip angle of 90 to 110 degrees which means your legs can often stop you sitting closely with your patient. This encourages the tendency to lean over further to get a good view of your patients mouth. Adjusting the stool height isn't an option either as you would be forced to lift your arms higher, further increasing the tension on your shoulders and neck.
On an Hopper Dental Saddle with Back Support you can sit comfortably in an elevated position, meaning your upper legs will be oriented in a more downward and sideways direction (instead of forwards). This allows you to sit far closer to your patient in a safer position while easily pushing with your left or right leg to move around.
3. Work to your best in an open posture with better concentration and increased energy.
Traditional dental saddles promote prolonged static sitting which leads to a dull or tingling feeling as blood vessels can become pinched.
The ergonomic shape of the Hopper Dental Saddle with Back Support encourages an open posture and makes breathing easier. The unique design improves digestion and blood circulation also, resulting in greater focus and more energy throughout the day.
